Kindersley RCMP Send Reminder for Golf Cart Drivers

With golf season upon us the Kindersley RCMP have received some complaints and enquiries about golf carts being on the roadways. If your municipality chooses to adopt a bylaw for golf carts the bylaw must be approved by SGI and meet their conditions which includes:

·         Golf cart drivers must hold at least a valid Class 7 licence.

·         Owners must carry a minimum of $200,000 in liability insurance.

·         The vehicles must be driven in daylight hours.

·         Golf carts must display a slow-moving vehicle sign.

·         Golf carts cannot operate on any road with a speed limit over 50 km/h.

·         Golf carts must be equipped as defined in The Registration Exemption and Reciprocity Regulations (at least three wheels, weight limit of 590 kilograms, not counting riders and clubs).

·         Golf carts must not be operated on any provincial highway other than to cross one.

·         Municipalities must include in their bylaw that they will monitor and inform SGI of any collisions that occur and if there were any injuries or fatalities.

Kindersley RCMP would also like to advise the community that as they are now fully staffed at the Kindersley Detachment front counter criminal record checks can be done any day of the week.

Between May 6th to May 19th, Kindersley RCMP responded to a further 88 calls for service.  These calls included, but were not limited to, 2 vehicles failing to remain at the scene of an accident, 2 disobeying a court order complaints assaults, and 9 suspicious person/vehicle complaints.
